A Rose Blooms Again
A Survivor's Story

Rose Rothschild

Paper $24.95    |    08156-0769-5    |   2003

A stirring true story of inner transformation, survival, and a young Jewish girl's journey into womanhood during the darkest days of the Holocaust.

This emotionally charged memoir begins with recollections of joyous times in prewar Poland. Born into wealth rare for Polish Jewry, the author recalls a girlhood of privilege, and teen years spent in anticipation of war. Like the rest of the nation, her family was consumed by spirited political debates, only to be abruptly silenced by sirens screaming in the night. Poland had fallen to Hitler's Germany in a swift and savage invasion that would forever alter young Rose Strzegowski's fate. . . and that of the world.

With powerful immediacy she shows how inner strength enabled her to triumph amid the horrors of the camps, to risk all to nurse her sick sister, to surmount postwar hardships as a displaced person and, finally, to embrace newfound happiness. It is an unforgettable story of historic adversity filtered through the prism of personal courage, faith, and growth.

Rose Rothschild was born Rose Strzegowski in Dombrova-Gorniecza, Poland, in 1925. During the Nazi occupation she was sent to several intern work camps before reaching the death camp Bergen-Belsen. For several decades, she has been a lecturer on the Holocaust at schools and organizations.
With a Foreword by David Weintraub
